Animal Adventure Park, Harpursville

Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
Animal Adventure is an interactive educational animal park, nestled in the hills of Harpursville, NY, just 15 minutes outside of Binghamton. Only minutes of I-88.

Our goal is to communicate an appreciation for living things through the use of the human senses; allowing our guests to get up close and hands on with our animal ambassadors.

The unique experience of hand feeding 100s of animals, being neck and neck with our giraffes, and spotting an emerging kangaroo or wallaby joey, will engage and educate guests of all ages.

Through understanding and appreciation, education can flourish!

Many local families, schools, and organizations have invited us to share this message with their students, residents, and guests. Our hands on educational shows leave a lasting impression!

We provide interactive educational shows & parties with our "Zoo to You" programs year round! Visit our website to learn more & to book.

  • 10/10 was an awesome place to bring my family to visit! Lots of cool animals and was kept very clean! Staff was beyond friendly and helpful. The entire park was well maintained and had a very welcoming and healthy atmosphere. The animals are all well taken care of and are thriving! I have visited many times and cannot wait for my next adventure!! I highly recommend a family outing to Animal Adventure Park!
  • This place is AMAZING!! so many animals, also some you can feed and pet. I highly recommend if you do feed them, get the lunch box (it has everything for ALL animals). My son was so happy getting close with some of the animals. Staff is so friendly and very helpful as well as such a clean park. If you get the chance, go! It is definitely a experience you wont forget.
  • We had a great time at Animal Adventure Park! Very clean park with well cared for animals. You can tell they have put a lot of new structures and fencing in recently and have boomed in popularity with April the Giraffe fame a few years back. My daughter loved feeding the animals and we enjoyed the variety of different animals they had to make a day long trip enjoyable. Would recommend!
  • Nice place in the middle of nowhere. Met April the giraffe🦒. And lots of of other cool animals. They let you get up close to most of the animals and you can feed most of them. The Lions, Bears and Hyenas we're cool too. Around $50 for my wife, son and I with purchase of food to feed the animals. Gift shop prices were reasonable.
  • It was an awesome trip. I went mainly to see the giraffes again but just loved all of the animals. I did the Aussie Encounter too and that was so great! The staff was so kind and informative. I’ll be going back annually probably for the rest of my life. When you find a place in this world that brings you peace. Go for it!
